Build a large scalable REST API in Flask & Python
Connect the Flask REST API to a SQLAlchemy Database
By the end of this project, you will be able to build an API with Flask and Python. Moreover, you will apply your knowledge of APIs to create a functional REST API with GET/POST endpoints that parse user request data and return JSON. You will also implement features in Flask to ensure your application validates user input and is well-structured using Blueprints. You will then conclude by connecting your application to a database. This project is for intermediate Python programmers who already have a basic familiarity with the Python programming language and are interested in learning how to develop applications for the web. This project will provide you with the skills needed to develop an API with Flask & Python.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Run Your First Python Application with Flask
Add GET Endpoints in Flask
Add a POST Endpoint in Flask and Handle Errors
Add Flask Blueprints To Scale Your REST API
Connect the Flask REST API to a Database
